I aquired some stock springs off of a 06 GTO:lol: My friend picked them up off of another GTO owner, I don't know why. I know stock springs suck, I don't know weather to toss them or keep them.

Aren't the stock springs on the 05/06 a tad bit stiffer then the 04s? Econo mod until they sag since it isn't like it is much work to install them in the first pace.

I'd rock them.

Not that I know of, I thought they were all the same. I have Lovells 350mm in the rears allready and planning on going with Lovells 340mm in the front. I have no use for them.

Maybe it was just the ride difference beween 17s in my car VS 18s in her 05 then. Looking back on it, it was a really dramatic jump though.... I can't see how people woudld even want to go with 19s.

I think the springs are basically the same for all the years. Now would I install OE coils that were on a GTO shipped from Au? ABSOLUTELY NOT!! They are all damaged and collapsed as soon as they get off the boat. OE coils are all collapsed from 1/2 to 1.25 inches. When they do collapse, they also loose part of their spring rate, which is already too low.

thanks

I'm just going to chuck them, I have no use for them besides taking up space.

I got a set of Pedders from Mike. WOW. Noticeable difference. Raised the back end 1-1/2" As stated in other threads of why etc.... OEM springs are more expensive than Pedders. It don't look like it sets up too high, people are used to seeing them sit too low.
